How to use the Quote tag to make replies more readable

Post by ABQTBird » Fri Aug 09, 2013 12:15 am

All too often when posting a reply, the entire post is quoted, along with all of the pictures. Also, the original text mixes in with the reply making it hard to read. Rather than quote the entire post with the Quote button, copy the pertinent text and enclose it in a Quote tag. This will put the text into a nice white box that is easy to read. Here I just want to reply to the pertinent portion of his comment:

Highlight the text, right click and copy it.

Click the Quote tag.

Right click and paste the text in the Quote tag and close the tag.

Preview your post. Note: You do not need a line break below the quote as one is added by the software
